Hur­ri­cane keeps Marvel’s Fal­con ac­tor from Comic Con Africa

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

JO­HAN­NES­BURG - Hur­ri­cane Florence has grounded the Fal­con. Anthony Mackie, the ac­tor who has played the su­per­hero in Marvel movies, can­celled a sched­uled ap­pear­ance at Comic Con Africa in South Africa be­cause of the storm mak­ing land­fall on the U.S. east coast. “I’m so sorry I couldn’t make it,” Mackie says in a video mes­sage to fans at­tend­ing the three-day comic book and pop cul­ture con­ven­tion that starts Fri­day. Or­ga­niz­ers say it is sold out. “With all the weather, trav­el­ling across the At­lantic - it kind of pushed my plans back a lit­tle bit,” Mackie says. Event or­ga­niz­ers say fans who bought au­to­graph ses­sions and photo ops with the ac­tor can get re­funds or swap tick­ets for an­other celebrity guest.
